    Did you use your 14mm f2.8 Fuji lens while it was raining?

  • Peter says:

    Any thoughts about using the attachable flash supplied with the XT-2, or is it just not strong enough for this kind of situation?

  • Dan says:

    Peter, if you’re shooting relatively close up with the little EF-X8 flash, say within 10 feet at f/4 or wider, you should be able to get visible results. Beyond that, you’ll definitely see the light level decrease.

  • Dan says:

    Yes, Joe. During the heaviest downpour, I kept the camera covered inside my jacket in between racers and kept a lens cloth on hand in case the glass got wet. I would whip it out, shoot, and quickly shove it back inside my jacket. The non-WR lenses do ok in the rain, you just don’t want to expose them to prolonged water. The reality is that if it’s raining that hard, your biggest issue is keeping the front element dry. In a heavy rain, that can be quite challenging!

    Thanks Dan. That is good to know.

    I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

    Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

    You have done it again! Another triumph.

    Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

    Thank you, Dan.
